SWR + Firestore

// Get a document
const { data } = useDocument('users/fernando')
// Subscribe to a collection
const { data: songs } = useCollection('songs', {
  listen: true,
  limit: 30,
  where: [
    ['artist', '==', 'Drake'],
    ['yearReleased', '>=', '2017']
  ],
  orderBy: ['playCount', 'desc']
})

It's that easy.

???? This library provides the hooks you need for querying Firestore, that you can actually use in production, on every screen.

⚡️ It aims to be the fastest way to use Firestore in a React app, both from a developer experience and app performance perspective.

???? This library is built on top useSWR, meaning you get all of its awesome benefits out-of-the-box.

You can now fetch, add, and mutate Firestore data with zero boilerplate.

Features

  • Shared state / cache between collection and document queries (instead of Redux??)
  • Works with both React and React Native.
  • Blazing fast
  • set, update, and add update your global cache, instantly
  • TypeScript-ready (see docs)
  • Realtime subscriptions (example)
  • Prevent memory leaks from Firestore subscriptions
  • No more parsing document.data() from Firestore requests
  • Server-side rendering (SSR or SSG) with Next.js (example)
  • Automatic date parsing (no more .toDate())

...along with the features touted by Vercel's incredible SWR library:

"With SWR, components will get a stream of data updates constantly and automatically. Thus, the UI will be always fast and reactive."

  • Transport and protocol agnostic data fetching
  • Fast page navigation
  • Revalidation on focus
  • Interval polling
  • Request deduplication
  • Local mutation
  • Pagination
  • TypeScript ready
  • SSR support
  • Suspense mode
  • Minimal API

Sponsor / Shameless plug: Doorman

Besides maintaining this project, I'm currently working on Doorman – Firebase phone authentication for React Native apps. It comes with fully-baked & customizable UI components, stateful auth hooks, and more.

Even if you don't sign up for Doorman, the library (react-doorman or react-native-doorman) is free, and has many useful hooks for Firebase auth.

Installation

yarn add @nandorojo/swr-firestore

# or
npm install @nandorojo/swr-firestore

Install firebase:

# if you're using expo:
expo install firebase

# if you aren't using expo:
yarn add firebase
# or
npm i firebase

Set up

In the root of your app, create an instance of Fuego and pass it to the FuegoProvider.

If you're using next.js, this goes in your pages/_app.js file.

App.js

import React from 'react'
import 'firebase/firestore'
import 'firebase/auth'
import { Fuego, FuegoProvider } from '@nandorojo/swr-firestore'

const firebaseConfig = {
  // put yours here
}

const fuego = new Fuego(firebaseConfig)

export default function App() {
  return <FuegoProvider fuego={fuego}>{/* Your app code here! */}</FuegoProvider>
}

Make sure to create your Fuego instance outside of the component. The only argument Fuego takes is your firebase config variable.

Under the hood, this step initializes firebase for you. No need to call firebase.initializeApp.

Basic Usage

Assuming you've already completed the setup...

Subscribe to a document

import React from 'react'
import { useDocument } from '@nandorojo/swr-firestore'
import { Text } from 'react-native'

export default function User() {
  const user = { id: 'Fernando' }
  const { data, update, error } = useDocument(`users/${user.id}`, { listen: true })

  if (error) return <Text>Error!</Text>
  if (!data) return <Text>Loading...</Text>

  return <Text>Name: {user.name}</Text>
}

Get a collection

import React from 'react'
import { useCollection } from '@nandorojo/swr-firestore'
import { Text } from 'react-native'

export default function UserList() {
  const { data, update, error } = useCollection(`users`)

  if (error) return <Text>Error!</Text>
  if (!data) return <Text>Loading...</Text>

  return data.map((user) => <Text key={user.id}>{user.name}</Text>)
}

useDocument accepts a document path as its first argument here. useCollection works similarly.

Simple examples

Query a users collection:

const { data } = useCollection('users')

Subscribe for real-time updates:

const { data } = useDocument(`users/${user.id}`, { listen: true })

Make a complex collection query:

const { data } = useCollection('users', {
  where: ['name', '==', 'fernando'],
  limit: 10,
  orderBy: ['age', 'desc'],
  listen: true
})

Pass options from SWR to your document query:

// pass SWR options
const { data } = useDocument('albums/nothing-was-the-same', {
  shouldRetryOnError: false,
  onSuccess: console.log,
  loadingTimeout: 2000
})

Pass options from SWR to your collection query:

// pass SWR options
const { data } = useCollection(
  'albums',
  {
    listen: true,
    // you can pass multiple where conditions if you want
    where: [['artist', '==', 'Drake'], ['year', '==', '2020']]
  },
  {
    shouldRetryOnError: false,
    onSuccess: console.log,
    loadingTimeout: 2000
  }
)

Add data to your collection:

const { data, add } = useCollection('albums', {
  where: ['artist', '==', 'Drake']
})

const onPress = () => {
  // calling this will automatically update your global cache & Firestore
  add({
    title: 'Dark Lane Demo Tapes',
    artist: 'Drake',
    year: '2020'
  })
}

Set document data:

const { data, set, update } = useDocument('albums/dark-lane-demo-tapes')

const onReleaseAlbum = () => {
  // calling this will automatically update your global cache & Firestore
  set(
    {
      released: true
    },
    { merge: true }
  )

  // or you could call this:
  update({
    released: true
  })
}

Use dynamic fields in a request:

If you pass null as the collection or document key, the request won't send.

Once the key is set to a string, the request will send.

Get list of users who have you in their friends list

import { useDoormanUser } from 'react-doorman'

const { uid } = useDoormanUser()
const { data } = useCollection(uid ? 'users' : null, {
  where: ['friends', 'array-contains', uid]
})

Get your favorite song

const me = { id: 'fernando' }

const { data: user } = useDocument<{ favoriteSong: string }>(`users/${me.id}`)

// only send the request once the user.favoriteSong exists!
const { data: song } = useDocument(user?.favoriteSong ? `songs/${user.favoriteSong}` : null)

Parse date fields in your documents

Magically turn any Firestore timestamps into JS date objects! No more .toDate().

Imagine your user document schema looks like this:

type User = {
  name: string
  lastUpdated: {
    date: Date
  }
  createdAt: Date
}

In order to turn createdAt and lastUpdated.date into JS objects, just use the parseDates field:

In a document query

const { data } = useDocument<User>('user/fernando', {
  parseDates: ['createdAt', 'lastUpdated.date']
})

let createdAt: Date
if (data) {
  // ✅ all good! it's a JS Date now.
  createdAt = data.createdAt
}

data.createdAt and data.lastUpdated.date are both JS dates now!

In a collection query

const { data } = useCollection<User>('user', {
  parseDates: ['createdAt', 'lastUpdated.date']
})

if (data) {
  data.forEach(document => {
    document.createdAt // JS date!
  })
}

For more explanation on the dates, see issue #4.

Paginate a collection:

Video here.

import React from "react";
import { fuego, useCollection } from "@nandorojo/swr-firestore";

const collection = "dump";
const limit = 1;
const orderBy = "text";

export default function Paginate() {
  const { data, mutate } = useCollection<{ text: string }>(
    collection,
    {
      limit,
      orderBy,
    },
    {
      // this lets us update the local cache + paginate without interruptions
      revalidateOnFocus: false,
      refreshWhenHidden: false,
      refreshWhenOffline: false,
      refreshInterval: 0,
    }
  );

  const paginate = async () => {
    if (!data?.length) return;

    const ref = fuego.db.collection(collection);

    // get the last document in our current query
    // ideally we could pass just a doc ID, but firestore requires the doc snapshot
    const startAfterDocument = await ref.doc(data[data.length - 1].id).get();

    // get more documents, after the most recent one we have
    const moreDocs = await ref
      .orderBy(orderBy)
      .startAfter(startAfterDocument)
      .limit(limit)
      .get()
      .then((d) => {
        const docs = [];
        d.docs.forEach((doc) => docs.push({ ...doc.data(), id: doc.id }));
        return docs;
      });

    // mutate our local cache, adding the docs we just added
    // set revalidate to false to prevent SWR from revalidating on its own
    mutate((state) => [...state, ...moreDocs], false);
  };

  return data ? (
    <div>
      {data.map(({ id, text }) => (
        <div key={id}>{text}</div>
      ))}
      <button onClick={paginate}>paginate</button>
    </div>
  ) : (
    <div>Loading...</div>
  );
}

Query Documents

You'll rely on useDocument to query documents.

import React from 'react'
import { useDocument } from '@nandorojo/swr-firestore'

const user = { id: 'Fernando' }
export default () => {
  const { data, error } = useDocument(`users/${user.id}`)
}

If you want to set up a listener (or, in Firestore-speak, onSnapshot) just set listen to true.

const { data, error } = useDocument(`users/${user.id}`, { listen: true })

API

Imports

import {
  useDocument,
  useCollection,
  revalidateDocument,
  revalidateCollection,
  // these all update BOTH Firestore & the local cache ⚡️
  set, // set a firestore document
  update, // update a firestore document
  add, // add a firestore document to a collection
  fuego // get the firebase instance used by this lib
} from '@nandorojo/swr-firestore'

useDocument(path, options)

const { data, set, update, deleteDocument, error, isValidating, mutate } = useDocument(path, options)

Arguments

  • path required The unique document path for your Firestore document.
    • string | null. If null, the request will not be sent. This is useful if you want to get a user document, but the user ID hasn't loaded yet, for instance.
    • This follows the same pattern as the key argument in useSWR. See the SWR docs for more. Functions are not currently supported for this argument.
  • options (optional) A dictionary with added options for the query. Takes the folowing values:
    • listen = false: If true, sets up a listener for this document that updates whenever it changes.
    • You can also pass any of the options available from useSWR.

Return values

Returns a dictionary with the following values:

  • set(data, SetOptions?): Extends the firestore document set function.
    • You can call this when you want to edit your document.
    • It also updates the local cache using SWR's mutate. This will prove highly convenient over the regular Firestore set function.
    • The second argument is the same as the second argument for Firestore set.
  • update(data): Extends the Firestore document update function.
    • It also updates the local cache using SWR's mutate. This will prove highly convenient over the regular set function.
  • deleteDocument(): Extends the Firestore document delete function.
    • It also updates the local cache using SWR's mutate by deleting your document from this query and all collection queries that have fetched this document. This will prove highly convenient over the regular delete function from Firestore.

The dictionary also includes the following from useSWR:

  • data: data for the given key resolved by fetcher (or undefined if not loaded)
  • error: error thrown by fetcher (or undefined)
  • isValidating: if there's a request or revalidation loading
  • mutate(data?, shouldRevalidate?): function to mutate the cached data

useCollection(path, query, options)

const { data, add, error, isValidating, mutate } = useCollection(path, query, options)

Arguments

  • path required string, path to collection.
  • query optional dictionary with Firestore query details
  • options SWR options (see SWR docs)

path

path required The unique document path for your Firestore document.

  • string | null. If null, the request will not be sent. This is useful if you want to get a user document, but the user ID hasn't loaded yet, for instance.
  • This follows the same pattern as the key argument in useSWR. See the SWR docs for more. Functions are not currently supported for this argument.

query

(optional) Dictionary that accepts any of the following optional values:

  • listen = false: if true, will set up a real-time listener that automatically updates.
  • limit: number that limits the number of documents
  • where: filter documents by certain conditions based on their fields
  • orderBy: sort documents by their fields
  • startAt: number to start at
  • endAt: number to end at
  • startAfter: number to start after
  • endBefore: number to end before
where

Can be an array, or an array of arrays.

Each array follows this outline: ['key', 'comparison-operator', 'value']. This is pulled directly from Firestore's where pattern.

// get all users whoses name are Fernando
useCollection('users', {
  where: ['name', '==', 'Fernando']
})

// get all users whose names are Fernando & who are hungry
useCollection('users', {
  where: [['name', '==', 'Fernando'], ['isHungry', '==', true]]
})

// get all users whose friends array contains Fernando
useCollection('users', {
  where: ['friends', 'array-contains', 'Fernando']
})
orderBy

Can be a string, array, or an array of arrays.

Each array follows this outline: ['key', 'desc' | 'asc']. This is pulled directly from Firestore's orderBy pattern.

// get users, ordered by name
useCollection('users', {
  orderBy: 'name'
})

// get users, ordered by name in descending order
useCollection('users', {
  orderBy: ['name', 'desc']
})

// get users, ordered by name in descending order & hunger in ascending order
useCollection('users', {
  orderBy: [
    ['name', 'desc'], //
    ['isHungry', 'asc']
  ]
})

options

(optional) A dictionary with added options for the request. See the options available from SWR.

Return values

Returns a dictionary with the following values:

  • add(data): Extends the Firestore document add function.
    • It also updates the local cache using SWR's mutate. This will prove highly convenient over the regular add function provided by Firestore.

The returned dictionary also includes the following from useSWR:

  • data: data for the given key resolved by fetcher (or undefined if not loaded)
  • error: error thrown by fetcher (or undefined)
  • isValidating: if there's a request or revalidation loading
  • mutate(data?, shouldRevalidate?): function to mutate the cached data

set(path, data, SetOptions?)

Extends the firestore document set function.

  • You can call this when you want to edit your document.
  • It also updates the local cache using SWR's mutate. This will prove highly convenient over the regular Firestore set function.
  • The second argument is the same as the second argument for Firestore set.

This is useful if you want to set a document in a component that isn't connected to the useDocument hook.

update(path, data):

Extends the Firestore document update function.

  • It also updates the local cache using SWR's mutate. This will prove highly convenient over the regular set function.

This is useful if you want to update a document in a component that isn't connected to the useDocument hook.

add(path, data):

Extends the Firestore document add function.

  • It also updates the local cache using SWR's mutate. This will prove highly convenient over the regular add function.
  • Use this instead of firebase.firestore().collection('users').add(data)

deleteDocument(path, ignoreLocalMutations = false)

Extends the Firestore document delete function.

  • It also updates the local cache using SWR's mutate by deleting your document from this query and all collection queries that have fetched this document. This will prove highly convenient over the regular delete function from Firestore.
  • Second argument is a boolean that defaults to false. If true, it will not update the local cache, and instead only send delete to Firestore.

revalidateDocument(path)

Refetch a document from Firestore, and update the local cache. Useful if you want to update a given document without calling the connected revalidate function from use useDocument hook.

  • Only argument is the Firestore document path (ex: users/Fernando)

revalidateCollection(path)

Refetch a collection query from Firestore, and update the local cache. Useful if you want to update a given collection without calling the connected revalidate function from use useCollection hook.

  • Only argument is the Firestore document path (ex: users)
  • Note Calling revalidateCollection will update all collection queries. If you're paginating data for a given collection, you probably won't want to use this function for that collection.

fuego

The current firebase instance used by this library. Exports the following fields:

  • db: the current firestore collection instance
  • auth: the firebase.auth variable.
import { fuego } from '@nandorojo/swr-firestore'

fuego.db.doc('users/Fernando').get()

fuego.auth().currentUser?.uid

Features

TypeScript Support

Create a model for your typescript types, and pass it as a generic to useDocument or useCollection.

useDocument

The data item will include your TypeScript model (or null), and will also include an id string, an exists boolean, and hasPendingWrites boolean.

type User = {
  name: string
}

const { data } = useDocument<User>('users/fernando')

if (data) {
  const {
    id, // string
    name, // string
    exists, // boolean
    hasPendingWrites, // boolean
  } = data
}

const id = data?.id //  string | undefined
const name = data?.name // string | undefined
const exists = data?.exists // boolean | undefined
const hasPendingWrites = data?.hasPendingWrites // boolean | undefind

useCollection

The data item will include your TypeScript model (or null), and will also include an id string.

type User = {
  name: string
}

const { data } = useCollection<User>('users')

if (data) {
  data.forEach(({ id, name }) => {
    // ...
  })
}

Shared global state between documents and collections

A great feature of this library is shared data between documents and collections. Until now, this could only be achieved with something like a verbose Redux set up.

So, what does this mean exactly?

Simply put, any documents pulled from a Firestore request will update the global cache.

To make it clear, let's look at an example.

Imagine you query a user document from Firestore:

const { data } = useDocument('users/fernando')

And pretend that this document's data returns the following:

{ "id": "fernando", "isHungry": false }

Remember that isHungry is false here ^

Now, let's say you query the users collection anywhere else in your app:

const { data } = useCollection('users')

And pretend that this collection's data returns the following:

[
  { "id": "fernando", "isHungry": true },
  {
    //...
  }
]

Whoa, isHungry is now true. But what happens to the original document query? Will we have stale data?

Answer: It will automatically re-render with the new data!

swr-firestore uses document id fields to sync any collection queries with existing document queries across your app.

That means that if you somehow fetch the same document twice, the latest version will update everywhere.
